The Wildlife Trusts have an exciting opportunity for someone who has a strong track-record in planning and securing positive media coverage that drives change; a passion for wildlife and our planet and would like to work for one of the UK’s best-loved nature charities. We are looking for a talented and creative leader and team-player, whose media skills will help The Wildlife Trusts influence key stakeholders and public opinion to take positive action for nature.

Who we are

The Wildlife Trusts are a grassroots movement of 870,000 members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK. We are at an exciting moment in our 110-year history, with an ambitious new strategy setting out a vision of nature in recovery, with abundant, diverse wildlife and natural processes creating wilder landscapes where people and nature thrive.

The next 10 years will be critical in determining what kind of world we will all live in. We need to reverse the loss of wildlife and put nature into recovery at scale as a matter of urgency if we are to prevent climate and ecological disaster. This will require big, bold changes in the way we think and operate, and the development of a strong, collaborative culture. It will require key stakeholders and the public to take action for nature’s recovery.

About you

You will be a motivated and resilient self-starter, who thrives as part of a team. You will be experienced in working in an in-house press office/PR agency within a senior role, planning workloads, analysing and evaluating media activity and campaigns, and developing strategic media plans. You will have proven success in securing high impact media coverage for key campaigns and initiatives. Ideally you will have line management experience.

You will have excellent communication and inter-personal skills and will thrive on working with a wide range of people from across The Wildlife Trusts and externally. You will be a strategic thinker with a keen eye for detail, used to balancing multiple priorities for yourself and others and working against tight deadlines.

We want our people to be as diverse as society, so we particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within our sector, including people from minority backgrounds and people with disabilities. We are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities.

As a Disability Confident employer, we are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustments to make our recruitment process more accessible.
